Bank fraud is a serious white-collar crime typically investigated by federal law enforcement agencies since the offense involves federal banks and financial institutions. A conviction is punishable by a maximum federal prison sentence of 30 years and fines of up to $1 million. Since bank fraud is a complex offense, many people who weren’t directly involved or had no knowledge of wrongdoing could mistakenly be charged.

Federal Bank Fraud Laws

Bank fraud is defined as defrauding a financial institution or obtaining funds, credits, or other types of property under a financial institution through false or fraudulent means. Common examples of bank fraud include forgery, loan fraud, falsifying financial or loan documents, bank impersonation (creating a fake financial institution), money laundering, or any type of fraud involving a federally insured bank.

The prosecution must prove the following elements in order to convict you of federal bank fraud:

  • You ran or attempted to run a scheme to defraud a financial institution or obtain its money through false or fraudulent means.
  • You intentionally and knowingly participated in this fraud scheme
  • The financial institution is insured by or part of the federal government

At the Law Office of Stephen F. Hall, we can raise defenses to get your case dismissed, penalties reduced, or win the case at trial.
